Darius Rucker will bring an all-star lineup to Nashville's Ryman Auditorium tonight (Monday, June 3rd) night for his 10th annual fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This year, Darius will be joined by Luke Bryan, Kane Brown, Sheryl Crow, Jimmie Allen, Travis Denning, Jillian Jacqueline and Brett Young.
Darius tells us why St. Jude is his charity of choice. ["First of all, I always have to do something for kids, you know, and I went to St. Jude's and met all the kids and everybody, the doctors and everybody. It just seemed to me when I heard that no one ever gets a bill, that's just amazing to me. That must be so amazingly expensive, and so I was like, 'I want to do something,' and we thought about doing this."] SOUNDCUE (:24 OC: . . . still doing it.)
To date, the “Darius & Friends” event has raised nearly $2 million for the Memphis, Tennessee facility.
